5 Tips for Awesome Flights
Spring is in the air and summer will soon be here, and that means it’s vacation time. Make this vacation one you’ll never forget by taking an adventure tour. There’s no better choice than heading to Vegas and taking an airplane tour of the Grand Canyon.
Here are a few tried and tested tips you can use to help plan the best trip possible.
#1 Use The Internet When Booking Your Tour
It’s very easy to buy your tour online. You can easily search all the available tours and book the one you want. Not only that, you’ll get the lowest price when you book your tour online. The Internet rate is lower because you book the tour yourself and avoid fees added on by a sales agent. The low price and convenience is nice, but the best reason to book your tour online is that you can lock in your seats so you won’t have to worry about them being sold out on tour day.
#2 Book Your Tour Well In Advance
Many people take their vacations in the spring or summer, so it is a very busy time for airplane tours of the Canyon. For that reason, you should book your tour ahead of time, because if you don’t, it might be sold out. Try to buy your airplane tour at least two weeks in advance, but better yet, go ahead and book it when you book your hotel reservations. Just don’t forget about it until tour day rolls around. If you’re lucky enough to get seats at a late date, you may have to pay a higher price if you buy them within 48 hours of the flight.
#3 Reserve A Window Seat When Buying Your Tour
All seats on the plane provide good views, but the window seat offers the best viewing experience. Buying your tour early means you have a better opportunity of getting a window seat and the ultimate views on your flight.
#4 Buy A Landing Tour
You can book an airplane tour that flies over the Canyon, or you can book one that lands there. Landing tours offer adventure and the chance to see the Canyon from the ground. There are many fun activities at the Canyon such as hiking, visiting scenic lookouts, shopping, taking a helicopter ride to the Canyon floor, and walking on the glass Skywalk bridge.
#5 South Rim Flights Are Available Too
You can choose which rim you want to see when you take an airplane tour out of Vegas, so you may want to visit the South Rim. It takes around six hours to get to the South Rim from Vegas on a tour bus, but you can fly there in around an hour. Once you’re there, you have the choice of touring the Canyon by airplane or helicopter. If you book the longer helicopter tour, you’ll get to see the South Rim, North Rim, and all the park over to the eastern border. In all, you’ll get to see 3/4 of the entire National Park. It’s a very scenic tour that takes you over many of the notable landmarks in the Canyon, so it is worth the price.
